View Full Version : ICN Photo Slide Show (anyone interested)
08-16-2007, 06:25 AM
As I was watching it I was thinking about the slide shows that Janie Miranda and I have put together for fun.
I think some of us photo takers on the ICN here could make a nice presentation with many of the photos we have taken. I'd be happy to put one together if you all send me a photo and a caption to go underneath. Songs that you all like would be awesome too.
It can show the world that we still can do many things through IC. It can give those who are down about being diagnosed with IC something to see that can make the outlook on having IC not so bad.
What do you all think? (Janie, I may need your help on this)
1.Send a Photo or a Few to Kara email@example.com
2.With the email, send me some words that you'd like me to put under the photo (like what the photo is of or what it makes you feel)
3.And give me the name of a song that inspires you on your bad days
(Photos can be of anything that you've taken...nature, family, friends, anything....)
08-16-2007, 07:15 AM
OMG.. Kara this would be awesome....:angel:
08-16-2007, 08:14 AM
That is an amazing idea! I'll be emailing you!
08-17-2007, 06:53 AM
Kara...I will be putting a few pictures together to send to you. As far as music is concerned...How about "Come Away With Me" by Nora Jones. I love that song. It makes me feel all warm and comfortable.
08-17-2007, 07:49 AM
Cool Kara. I will email you some
08-17-2007, 09:25 AM
This will take time for all of us to get photos together so don't feel rushed. Lets just have fun with this.
I'm going to try to use many songs if we get enough pictures. I will use the Nora Jones one as the first one. Other song suggestions....keep em comin!:smile tee
08-17-2007, 09:50 AM
Kara, You rock!! If I can help in anyway just let me know...:) And yes things like this take time.. But I think the end results will be so awesome...With the songs and the people and pictures from people her on the ICN.. It will be a very personal creation for all of us...Like I said let me know if I can help..
Hubby and I do these for our family holidays like last year we took lots of pictures at Christmas and made it into a CD and put caption and music with it. Now this Christmas we will all set down and watch it..We kind of made it our new tradition.. Its a really fun thing to do.. Thanks again for doing this..:angel:
08-17-2007, 10:17 AM
Oh I forgot to ask.. How many pictures can we send, I know you need to put a limit on it:smile tee
08-21-2007, 07:01 AM
You can send as many as you want. :smile tee :smile tee
08-21-2007, 10:43 AM
Kara...I'm still working on my photos.
08-21-2007, 10:50 AM
My hubby did a slide show for my son's and future daughter-in-law (now wife's) rehearsal dinner. It was so sweet! I watched it the other day. My younger son would always help one of the men at our church do them after our church summer camps. The kids loved them. They would mix video in with pictures.
Kara, that is such a sweet thing to do for people. I am looking forward to seeing your creativity!
08-27-2007, 04:16 PM
Kara, this is a fantastic idea. I haven't been around the boards much of late. Am I too late to send you some pics?
08-28-2007, 02:04 AM
She is still waiting for more pictures from people.. She just is not feeling very good right now, but is still planning on doing the slide show. So yes please send your picts:smile tee
Kara, hope you didn't mind me answering for you.. I know you have not been feeling well.(((hugs))))
08-28-2007, 12:48 PM
Thanks for letting me know Leelee.
Kara, I am sorry to hear that you are unwell. Get better soon.
09-07-2007, 02:46 PM
I'm getting a few good days. I just got back from a IC Vacation. I will be back home Tomorrow. I still plan on doing this slide show.
09-07-2007, 05:20 PM
Glad to hear you are doing a little better..:angel:
09-08-2007, 12:07 PM
What a cool idea, Kara!! The only suggestion I have would be to maybe break it into a few slideshows instead of one huge one. Make one slideshow per song. See, many people might have slow internet service and if you make a slideshow that is too huge they might never be able to view it!
How exciting - i know this will turn out great!
09-09-2007, 01:47 PM
That is a great idea. I will use it. I also noticed that the longer you make one of those slide shows, the photos tend to not be as clear. Not sure why. In this case less is better.
Keep the emails rolling and we'll have a show soon. I've gotten 1 email so far from another Moderator.
09-10-2007, 09:50 AM
Rosalie, Sharon, Ronda, Leslie? Do you have any photos yet? You don't have to send them all today....maybe a few with captions that you'd like me to say under each one.
I've gotten 17 photos so far (only 2 members)
I'm getting excited because I have something to work with now.
09-10-2007, 09:54 AM
There on the way kara..:angel:
09-18-2007, 02:45 AM
ohh such a neat idea.....i'm not going to send any pics though b/c all the pictures i have are of my kids, not very exciting
09-18-2007, 03:07 AM
Don't give up on me, Kara. I will get to it, but I'm really busy right now.
I think it's a great idea!
09-18-2007, 03:40 AM
I sen 5 Kara, and feel free to pull anymore you want from my photobucket below.
09-18-2007, 03:55 AM
Great idea Kara, I know I have some saved here on my computer at work that I can send you. Will see what I can find during my next break.
09-19-2007, 01:17 PM
This slide show is about the entire IC family, including your kids if you wish Erika. Donna, don't worry I am going to put up several slide shows so your photos can appear in the 2nd one. I am going to work on the first one tonight and see how far I get.
09-20-2007, 12:00 PM
Ok, I am about to put together the First ICN slide show. Any more photos you all want me to throw in there just send me an email. It's not hard to add them. Just make sure you add a caption of what you would like me to say about each photo. I will use the music of those that sent me direct emails about what music they wanted.
There is another way I could do this but I would need permission of each person before I did it. I can take photos that have been submitted here already on the the photo threads and use those.........If anyone is opposed to this please let me know and I won't do it this way. I will just have you all who are interested email me individually. Just a thought
09-20-2007, 02:26 PM
Hey Kara, can't wait to see the slide show(s). Thanks for putting this together, and thanks Janie for the suggestion of not making it one big show. I'm on dialup at home with an old computer, so the shorter shows will be better for me at home. But at work, I've got much more up to date technology :) so I'm looking forward to viewing them there, too, during my lunch break.
So I'm going to send some more photos, if you don't mind, Kara, from my travels in Mexico and such and try to be more specific about the captions, as you were asking about in your email to me.
Thanks again, I'm excited!
09-20-2007, 02:55 PM
Here it is,
This ICN Slide Show #1 was put together with photos from Octoberfarm (Laura), Sandramac (Sandra), Briza, Dancemomof2 (Leslie) and Jessica.
The Songs were chosen by Leelee (Ronda) "Anyway" by Martina McBride
Octoberfarm (Laura) "Lady" by Kenny Rogers
Diana "Come Away With Me" by Nora Jones
I have worked all day on this. It's not exactly how I wanted it but I hope to get better with each slide show that I do.
You will click on this: http://www.boomspeed.com/eviscerae/icnslideshow.swf
It may take around 5-10 minutes to load up. sorry about that.....
Let me know if there are problems
Love and Hugs to you all! I look foward to more photos from everyone, even those that have already submitted for the first show firstname.lastname@example.org
09-20-2007, 03:11 PM
Kara, do whatever you need to with my photos:smile tee ...
Im so excited!!!
09-20-2007, 03:23 PM
I didn't get any of your photos................I would have put them in. Which ones were they? Do you have a photobucket? I will put them into the next slide show.
Do you have another song you'd like me to use?
09-20-2007, 05:23 PM
I sent you a photo. Tell me if you need anymore.
09-20-2007, 06:06 PM
Oh My Gosh Kara........Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. That was so beautiful that it made me cry and for the first time since I have been diagnosed with IC I was proud to have it. I was truly touched by the slideshow. I really feel that God has allowed me to go through this disease to meet people like you Kara, people that care, people who truly love, people who have compassion, people that are true and not fake, and people like you that have big old kind hearts and souls :angel: You are a true little angel Kara and if you were here I would give you a big old hug :grouphug:
Maybe one day if God allows us to we will be able to meet one another in person. That would be so awesome.....but until then once again, Thank You from the bottom of my heart :)
P.S. I am not going to hide my name any longer from my nosey family members. I am who I am :smile tee If they want to get on the board and read what I have to say then more power to them. Boy Kara, you really did release something in me :smile tee I think I will sign my name every time now:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :woohoo: :woohoo:
09-20-2007, 06:14 PM
Kara, I sent you all my photos..:( dont know what happend to them
09-20-2007, 06:30 PM
Yup Kara, I just checked I sent them on 9/10/07..
09-20-2007, 06:39 PM
Ok I know what I did...:bonk: I used another email addy you had givin me awhile back.. Oh well my fault..
The song I had chose was for a special purpose because it is what helped me get through the heart ache of loosing all that I had from the storm.. I really dont have another that I am fond of or that goes with my life story as well as that one did...Thanks anyways..
09-20-2007, 08:32 PM
Kara, I want to participate in the 2nd season! I wake up in a new world every day, so even though I have read the "to do's", I will need to read throught them again! I don't even remember how to watch the slideshow, but I am sure that I will figure it out!
09-20-2007, 08:45 PM
I just watched it. Kara, it was wonderful!
09-21-2007, 12:24 AM

Laura, wow, is all I can say, and I haven't even seen it yet. I wasn't able to download it on my very old computer, with dialup with windows 98, I was sooo disapointed last night, so I am getting moving fast this morning so I can hopefully see it on my computer at work before I have to start working! So gotta go, and this time it's not pee. LOL
Ronda, get your pics sent to the right addy and I'm sure Kara will use them and your song in her next slide show! :kiss:
Kara, thanks again, I'll post a reponse once I'm at work and see all that Laura is raving about! :grouphug:
09-21-2007, 01:09 AM
:angel: This is a beautiful morning as I started watching your beautiful slide show, Kara. The music, presentation, photos, thoughts brought tears of happiness to my eyes. Such a positive program. Thank you! suebee :smile tee
09-21-2007, 06:27 AM
A Virus was sent to my old email....that is what happened. It was big and almost threw my whole computer down so thus the new adddy email@example.com I am sorry about that Ronda.
Send me your photos today and I will add them in to this current slide show, since that song was for you! It will take me about half an hour to do so no worries. This was for you my dear,so send em! :smile tee
Don't forget to put what you want me to write under each photo. I am also looking into a better slide show program for the next one.
Love and Hugs,
P.S. Anyone else who wants to be added to this first slide show just let me know.
09-21-2007, 08:18 AM
09-21-2007, 11:05 AM
The slide show was awesome!! Kara I dont mind being on the next slide show.. Im sure there will be some more songs that will go great with the pictures..:smile tee
09-21-2007, 01:13 PM
Great Job, Kara!:smile tee
09-21-2007, 01:28 PM
TOTALLY AWESOME, KARA!!!! That was very nice and so touching! Great job!
I have to say your beautiful spirit shines though in making this.
09-21-2007, 04:55 PM

09-21-2007, 10:29 PM
It is great, Kara! Thank you...I was able to view it at work through the link in the email you sent me. Thank you so much. It is beautiful and I can't wait to see more pix in the next one. Great idea. Thank you! :)
09-23-2007, 12:04 PM
I sent you some more photos. I hope I am not sending too many! LOL!
09-23-2007, 03:39 PM
I just redid the slide show. I have to work with making the music fit. Mel, I could not find that song to use. I will work on this more tomorrow.
Sandra, I removed our photos because I am going to put them in a separate slide show for our trip.
Ronda, your photos and songs are up there.
I rearranged the show and put each family together so the songs would work better.
I'm too tired to fix it now and feel that it will be fresh tomorrow. I hope to have it up by tomorrow late afternoon.
I hope you all have a good night!
09-23-2007, 04:11 PM
Its so sweet of you to take time to do this..:angel:
09-23-2007, 09:27 PM
Yes, Kara, thank you so much! It is really great of you to put this together. I got your email, thanks, I can't wait to see the added pictures of Ronda :)and I'm so happy you were able to find the song I wanted...you'll have to tell me where you were able to find it. Going to work today specifically to view the additions :) but I'll find some time to get my work done, too. Thanks again:smile tee
09-24-2007, 04:46 AM
Kara...That was beautiful and a joy to watch.
I am sending you a pm about my pictures.
09-24-2007, 02:09 PM
The NEW SLIDE SHOW is DONE, However................I am having massive trouble with the MUSIC..................I am not happy with what it's doing. I will try for a another hour and then I will have to choose 1 or 2 songs for the whole thing instead of 4. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
I am sorry for the wait and hold up !
09-24-2007, 02:40 PM
:smile tee Thank's Kara I can't wait to see it !
hugs Sandra:cat: :cat: :cat: :cat:
09-24-2007, 02:59 PM
OK I have worked something out. I had to split all four songs between the whole slide show, 1 minute each.
I want to watch CSI Miami so I will post it up in one hour.
Sandra this isn't our slide show......sorry. It has Ronda, Laura, Briza, Jessica, Leslie and Melanie's photos.
I will put our trip up within the next few days Sandra.
Anyway I will be back to post the show in one hour!
It's been a long day
09-24-2007, 03:23 PM
I wanted this to be fun for you, not exhausting :(
But you are still awesome..
We, take pictures every Christmas of all the family and then we make it into a CD and slide show with Christmas music.. Then the next year we hand out copies to everyone so they can take it home and look at the Christmas before..Its really neet because you can see how much people have changed and kids have grown..:smile tee
09-24-2007, 03:40 PM
OK ITS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ICN SLIDE SHOW #1

Love and Hugs,
09-24-2007, 05:09 PM

09-24-2007, 05:47 PM
Nice job, Kara!! It is beautiful!!
Thanks for the hard work that you did on this.:smile tee :grouphug:
You made my day!
09-24-2007, 06:39 PM
I'm taking photos for the next slide show firstname.lastname@example.org
My Trip to See Sandra in Canada will be the next one I put up. It's done it just needs some tweaking and Sandra's Approval.
I had fun doing it. The program I used was a bit limiting so I will be on the lookout for a better program. Any ideas just let me know.
09-25-2007, 04:14 AM
That is so much fun. Good job, Kara.
09-25-2007, 04:41 AM
:loco: What am I doing wrong ? I TRY to view the slide show for some bizzare reason. I CLICK ON THE LINK AND NOTHING HAPPENGS.
HUGS Sandra :cat: :cat: :cat:
09-25-2007, 08:26 AM
Just give it some time. It will pop up. It takes a couple of minutes, if that, to load up.
09-26-2007, 09:10 AM
Kara...I have sent you my pictures via your e mail. There are 2 separate e mails.
09-26-2007, 09:32 AM
I will look at them and start putting them into the slide show program when I get home. I am at my Parents for the week so it may take a few days.
But I will do it, I promise!!!!!!!!!
09-26-2007, 10:31 AM
Absolutely okay with me. I hope you have a good visit.
09-26-2007, 12:55 PM
Sharon, are there any pictures of you?
I also forgot to ask you where your cabin in Arkansas is.
09-26-2007, 01:19 PM
Yea! I AM able to download on my 10 yr old computer, w/ dialup, w/ windows 98! It took about to 10 mins, just got to be patient...at work where I have MUCh more up to date technology it only took about 2 minutes to download. :) :)
Well, I figured out why my home computer speakers aren't working, looks like my favorite mini pit bull, June Bug, got to the wires and chewed one of them back in her bug in a rug chewing days.
Kara, you are so very talented! I'll say it again, thank you! It is so nice to see and get a feel for the lives of our IC family.
Laura, I love the pic of you and hubby at the grand piano!
Ronda, so there is Derrion ;)...I haven't forgotten, just been sick, but I will write back to you...I'm not able to access my reg email acct right now...I think some changes are being made on that site, so hopefully it will be accessible by tomorrow, in case you have emailed me and I haven't responded, that's why. LOVE your Mardi Gras pic...that one's great!!
Mel, beautiful wedding pictures!! Thanks for sharing!
Leslie, what precious daugthers you have! I used to tap dance...I loved your recital pic... I remember those days!
I hope I haven't forgotten anyone!
Donna, did you see my friend's dal*****n? I know you have your sweet Maggie...Alex (the dal in one of my photos in the slide show) is just as perfect as a dog you could ever know, and gorgeous!
Be careful, Kara, you may have given yourself a fulltime job with these slide shows! Make sure you get your rest...we're not going anywhere. :kiss:
I don't know what I did wrong maybe I spelled the breed of dog wrong...dal...., it got censored LOL... maybe it's too similar another word that starts with a "d" and ends w/ an "n" and sounds kinda the same.
09-27-2007, 03:25 AM
T83...No, there are no pictures of me as yet. I am rather camera shy. I may include one in my next batch to Kara.
It is not my cabin. It belongs to some long time friend's daughter and son in law. The owners live in Florida and are not there very often. They have given Hubby and me permission to go as often as we want when they are not using it. Right now, they are at the cabin with 3 youngest of their five children. Last week, Hubby and I went up there with the Grandmother (my friend) to help care for the three children while the owners were traveling elsewhere. It was hectic and a whole lot of fun. Hubby helped the two boys build a tree house while my friend and I shopped at all the antique shops around the area. Now that was fun.
09-27-2007, 06:26 AM
I'm planning on working on it a bit tonight for Sharon. I'm not at my home base computer at the moment.
Did you actually get to hear the music Briza?? I LOVE the song NOW! You got me hooked.
I also love the song that Ronda chose. It was new to me.
I have always loved Lady, Laura. Since I was real young.
Sharon may have her own slide show depending on how many photos she has given to me.
If you all give me a whole bunch of photos I can do them single show with one song.
Oh yeah (Those of you who want me to grab from their photobuckets, please let me know if it is ok first)
09-27-2007, 09:50 AM
Thanks again Kara for doing the slide show for us. I think we all really appreciate all of the work and love you put into doing that for us. You are awesome and a little angel :angel:
That song Lady was actually from my wedding. It was the first song that my husband and I danced to as husband and wife.
Briza thanks for the compliment about our picture. We took that on a cruise a few weeks ago. It is amazing what a good photographer can do :smile tee
I loved seeing everyone's pictures and the music they picked out. It makes you kind of feel like you know them even a little better.
Kara thanks again so much for you dedication. We all love you here on the board and appreciate more than you will ever know.
09-27-2007, 10:23 AM
Kara, what is the address to send the pictures? Do we give you the name of the song?
10-03-2007, 09:27 AM
You can send as many photos as you want to
Please write a caption that you would like me to put under each photo.
Song suggestions as well.
Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:smile tee :smile tee
I look forward to making the next one!
10-09-2007, 09:02 AM
Kara... i was just reading this at work! I am so excited! Is it too late to send pics for the second album??? ill deffinetly do it when i go home if its not to late! :):):)
10-24-2007, 07:44 AM
Kara, I just saw that you'd finished this. Is it too late to send you some pictures? It's beautiful. My computer rebooted itself once in the middle of watching it, and then one time it just closed the web browser. I'm not sure why or what's going on but I did finally get the whole thing watched when I changed browsers. It's really lovely and I'd like to send you some pictures too if it's not too late.
10-24-2007, 09:28 AM
Great job! That is simply beautiful. I love the music.
10-25-2007, 01:28 PM
I forgot I hadn't replied...but yes I got to see the new edited version and :)hear the music. It was all so beautiful. Thank you!
Laura, I need the name of that photographer! Even my own mother told me I'm not photogenic! :rolleyes: LOL
10-25-2007, 01:59 PM
I love it. Feel free to steal from my photo bucket. I think I emailed you the other 2 LOL
10-29-2007, 01:31 PM
I am working on the 2nd and 3rd and 4th Slide shows. I was interrupted because my Husband's Dad had 4 heart attacks in one day a few weeks ago and almost didn't make it. I haven't gotten back to working on the shows but I promise as soon as I get back from my trip to Canada this week, I will work on it.
For all of you, it's not to late to send photos. Keep them coming. Make sure you have captions for me to put under each photo. If you have a favorite song, feel free to share that too. I will use it in the shows.
I will get back to this within the next few weeks.
Thank you all for sharing your photos with me and giving me the opportunity to make you smile and feel proud of your friends and family.
10-29-2007, 03:05 PM
I wish I knew how to make slide shows. My husband passed away last week and it would be nice to have one done to give to family members.
10-29-2007, 03:09 PM
Mel, there are many inexpensive slide show programs you can buy and download to your computer to do this..Then all you do is save them to a disk..
10-29-2007, 03:13 PM
THis one is free to do slideshows
10-29-2007, 03:45 PM
Thank you Leelee and Dancemom.
10-29-2007, 04:36 PM
Dear Mel ,
Kara & Myself are so very saddened to hear of the loss of your Husband, Kara say's if you would like to send her some picture's of you & your Husband & family and she will be horned to create a slideshow for you and tell her what music you would like played in the background.
Kara & Sandra
10-29-2007, 05:48 PM
Thanks so very much ladies! It will take me a couple of days to get some photos together and pick out some music. You've made my day!:smile tee
12-16-2007, 02:25 PM
I'm testing out a new program to see if I like it better. I am starting where I left off with Sharon's Slide Show to test.
Try this link and let me know if it works to view.......The first one you will see has the captions but the photos are not as clear. The 2nd one you can view under the first one....that could not have captions but the slide show photos come up nice and clear.
I tried two different types. One didn't let me type captions under it and one did. I am still playing around. In a few minutes I will post the 2nd one that I tried with the captions.
Thanks for your patience with these!
12-16-2007, 02:33 PM
Kara & Sandra,
That is so sweet to do the slideshow for Mel. You all are true little angels :angel::angel:
12-17-2007, 11:57 AM
Kara...Thank you. Sorry it took me so long to see this. I sent you a PM.

I will keep looking for other programs before I do the rest of your photos. I was going to do Tracey83's this week. But I will wait until a better program comes my way. I had to pay for this one. The first program I used was free but I didn't like the quality of the photos.
